Music: Auditions will be held this weekend. Sean Longstreet

Students across Santa Monica and surrounding communities are invited to take part in the 2022/23 season of Elemental Music. Ensemble placements and auditions will be held on Saturday, September 10 and Saturday, September 17. 

This season, westside families can choose from the following offerings:

● String, band, and choir ensembles (grades 3–6)

● Classical guitar ensemble (grades 3–8)

● Full orchestra for strings and winds (grades 6–8)

● Chamber music (grades 6–12)

These ensembles serve a wide range of students, from total beginners to advanced musicians with years of training. Rehearsals take place at family-friendly locations across Santa Monica. Students have multiple performance opportunities throughout the year, and tuition reduction is available on a sliding scale for qualified families.

Dedicated to building community and celebrating music-making through exceptional youth education programs, more than 2,800 students from Santa Monica and surrounding westside communities have participated in Elemental Music’s programs since 2004.
